This call for abstracts may be of interest to you and your networks:
Time is running out! Less than two weeks remain to submit your abstract to the most
important public health event of the year. The American Public Health Association is
receiving abstracts for our 141st Annual Meeting and Exposition to be held Nov. 2-6 in
Boston. Submit your abstract to join thousands of colleagues in presenting research in the
field of public health.
The deadline for submission of abstracts range from Feb. 4-8, depending on the Section,
Special Primary Interest Group, Caucus or Forum to which you wish to submit. All
submissions will end at 11:59 p.m. PST on the due date listed on the Call for Abstracts.
Theme: Think Global, Act Local
to submit your abstract.
The 2013 Annual Meeting theme is Think Global, Act Local with a focus on best practices
around the world. APHA encourages abstracts in all areas of public health as well as those
focusing on the theme. Specific topic areas for each group can be found online.
An easy-to-use online form will walk you through the process step by step. General
information as well as abstract requirements can be found on the Call for Abstracts page.
You do not need to be an APHA member to submit an abstract. However, if your abstract is
accepted for presentation, the presenting author MUST become an APHA individual member and
MUST register for the Annual Meeting by the September pre-registration deadline. (APHA
Learning Institute faculty are excluded.)
